Around the Net: Stitched the Film (257)

I’ve had this sitting in my email to blog about for a while but just haven’t had a chance to get to it:

Stitched is a fun-filled documentary following three quilters racing to complete their entries for the International Quilt Festival, the largest quilt show in the nation. The Houston show draws more than 50,000 quilters including three artists who created some controversy with their work. Quilting legend Caryl Bryer Fallert was the first to win a major prize for her quilt made with a sewing machine. She mentored Hollis Chatelain who caused a stir when she won an award for a painted quilt. And Hollis mentored Randall Cook who sparked controversy with his quilt of a male nude. In this 72-minute documentary, these quilters create their pieces to compete in the 2010 quilt show.

Sew grab a cup of Quilters Tea and sit back and enjoy the show:

 

Around the Net – Quilt Video(226)

Please take the time to watch this video, my dh came across it and I was truly mesmorized with the quality and the time Gayle Thomas put into this Quilt Film (give it time to download) it’s nice to watch on full screen to get the full affect. Also, turn up your sound 🙂 Enjoy!!

Around the Net (entry 31)

So around the net I go…here’s what I found for this weeks entry:

Machine Quilters Resource (pretty self explanatory however they offer classes and lectures, memberships are required, she puts in her recommendations from Houston etc – great site full of interesting facts and information).

Now with so many blogs being available and so many places to search for excellent quilting blogs like 

Quilting Bloggers 

Quilting Bloggers Logo 
 

 Quilter Blogs Similar to Quilting Gallery but they have a feed 

of course the infamous Facebook – here’s the link to my fan page (which you have to be a facebook member to join as a fan but you can still read along if you don’t want to join) there is unlimited access to all sorts of quilting clubs, groups, exchanges, challenges, swaps & so much more on Facebook so I would recommend you get an account.

I also found this blog called Man Quilter him and wife do professional machine quilting and quilting out of their home studio in Edmonton…check him out – so worth it! On his blog I found this amazing video on Zentangle for those of you who do know that this is – check it out!
